Giving back is good for your well-being and our community. The Cherry Avenue Boys and Girls Club is seeking reading buddies for their summer program for elementary school aged children. During the summer months, studies have shown that children who do not engage in regular reading activities actually lose some of the literacy that was gained during the school year. By making time each day for our younger Club members to read, we're helping children stay on level or even improve! Find out about The Boys and Girls Club's mission, this program and how you (and a friend!) can volunteer this summer to sit down with a good book and an eager child to improve and maintain literacy in the Charlottesville community! Free and open to the community.
